wellllllllllllll……GOTTA GO!!!!


If things start to seem like they’re falling apart on the potty side of your life….let’s say, you stop somewhere to use the facilities and it seems like there might be an issue, that something isn’t quite up to snuff…..that it’s not going to work out long term…..that the flusher just won’t flush correctly….well, if that happens and you’re living in something as quickly mobile as a van, you could just tell yourself, “wellllllllll……that’s unpleasant. GOTTA GO!!!!”


That’s a cool possibility.

Of course, when you live in something that’s anchored in place, like a home on a foundation, you can’t just ignore the problem and move along to another potty.

You have to fix the issue.

Putting some gas in the van and driving somewhere else does sound appealing, though.

This is a short video about a couple who spends a good bit of their lives on the road.

They work for 6 months on a holiday work visa, spend a year travelling, and then sell their van at the end of their trip and recoup a large part of their expenses.

What a plan!

I’m just excited about the option of ignoring a problem.

We’ll get our septic situation back in line and I’ll stop thinking about living in a van and travelling.

(Probably not. I want to see the video of a couple travelling in a van with 4 children and a Great Pyrenees. That’s the one that I want to see. Show me how to do that. Show me….because if I go, they go.)

Anyway, just because you’re moving doesn’t mean that you can outrun your problems.

Sometimes, you have to dig some new holes and figure out what to do when your potty doesn’t work right.

That’s what being an adult is all about.

Wheeeeeeeeeeee……”being an adult”.
